Ross Anderson is Professor of Security Engineering at Cambridge University. He is one of the founders of a vigorously-growing new academic discipline, the economics of information security. Ross was also a seminal contributor to the idea of peer-to-peer systems and an inventor of the AES finalist encryption algorithm "Serpent". He also has well-known publications on many other technical security topics including hardware tamper-resistance, medical record systems and smart meters. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society, the Royal Academy of Engineering, the IET and the IMA. He also wrote the standard textbook "Security Engineering - a Guide to Building Dependable Distributed Systems". Read more here.
Presentation: The Resilience of the Internet Interconnection Infrastructure
We are becoming ever more dependent on complex socio-technical systems; understanding how they could fail, and how we can make them more robust, is one of the grand challenges facing engineers today. In this talk I will describe an investigation into the resilience of the Internet that we conducted for ENISA, and the recommendations which have been adopted as policy. I will also discuss the implications for the project to secure the infrastructure using RPKI and BGPSEC. Read more here.
